works. obviously the big story is the climate story and what happened in copenhagen a few weeks ago. i have been astonished watching the globals then after the copenhagen meeting. what happened there is perceived completely differently in europe than it is here and in utterly differently in india then it is in europe, so if you track the flow of blogs and columns that are coming across on this, the assessment ranges from catastrophe to success. my sense of the story is there were actually to copenhagen meetings. there was a formal treaty negotiation that has been going on a essentially since the united states framework convention on climate change was ratified by 190 some nations back in the early 1990's and culminated in copenhagen, and there was a very brief 12-hour head of state negotiation that took place at the end of the copenhagen meeting. the first negotiation, the formal one, failed. the second one, i will talk about that a little more in a moment but i want to give you some background to understand what was happening there. every discussion of international climate change neg

those are not the number one issues for them. why is it important to flight to copenhagen, not once but twice? so i'm not saying that to be smarty, so much as i am asking question, why aren't we listening to people when they say they are starting for jobs lexa they're looking for economic rebounds. why do we look at the 16 million plus women in this country who currently owns all or part of a small business, and think of the untold millions of other american women who would love to harness their entrepreneurial spirit and create a little bit of a nest egg in flexibility and ownership for their small businesses? why can't we allow them just to flourish rather than try to suffocate them from the beginning? and so i want to read some of these numbers do you. i'm looking at over 30 crosstabs right here, and we compiled this from a number of national and publicly released poll so that the sample size is taken from over 3000 people in each of the three month periods between january 2009 and january of 2000. over a full year now. president obama's approval ratings have declined among every

force him to act they forced him to copenhagen on climate change, events on the ground force him to act and speak out on iran in ways he hadn't intenledssfd >> it's already happening in iran, when you consider that he spent the first year promoting engagement, something i think that many in the administration felt they had to go try in, part to bring the allies together in case they had to move on to sanctions. and i think the president has made it pretty clear they're moving to sanctions. gwen: there are more challenges on the table than there was last year at this time. thank you all very much. everyone, beginning next week, many of you will see a brand-new "washington week." the content remains the same, but we'll start broadcasting for the first time in high definition. i am definitely ready for my close-up.

in copenhagen where you saw president obama having to wrestle with all these tensions. can you imagine the nerve it took to walk into closed-door sessions as the president blowing at diplomatic protocol, wrenching the copenhagen assembly out of its original approach and into something new and doing this not knowing if it was going to work. in the article, i wrote about an important moment for president obama and he would get to this one way or another. this would be in the summer of 1864 near the end of president lincoln's first term. he reelection campaign is going and it is not going well. in fact, he in of the political experts in the country think he is going to lose. furthermore they think he is going to lose to general mcclellan who will not pursue lankan score policies in the civil war. lincoln, at that point, is living with the idea that he said hundreds of thousands of young men to their deaths for a failed war. he will be known as the president to failed to hold the union together. he is getting up every morning with that knowledge, living with a wife who was, frankly at times, psychot

. >> there are some pretty compelling concerns. there is the copenhagen accord. people are wondering what this is. there is an agreement but it is not legally binding. >> it is important, an important step forward. it certainly is not all we were seeking. it is not yet a legally binding accord. that is where we hope this will eventually go. there are some important steps forward. all of the countries are recognizing this is a problem. we had a big battle until very recently. they were denying that had anything to do about their emissions. we have been asking about this for about four years. everybody is now incorrect i think the objectives are not going to satisfy all of the environmental groups. if countries hole to these objectives, they will make meaningful progress. >> canada was getting beaten up about this. why? >> these are the environmental groups that have always attacked our governments and others and they are unhappy with the accords. governments have to balance progress with growth. these are not easy questions. we have a position that is held, but all countries that attended the cope

to copenhagen. does he hurt coakley? >> i don't think he hurts coakley, but i think he could hurt himself. >> i think he hurts her a bit. obama is still reasonably popular personally in massachusetts. but obama cares not, 51% of people in massachusetts are against, only 36% in favor. people are upset about obama not personally, but his policies. noor reason it reminds people that this is -- for that reason it reminds people this is an opportunity to send a message to washington. >> sean: one year into the obama presidency only 39% of the american people would vote to reelect him. 50% would vote against him. bigger picture, you're a democrat dug, more moderate, where is that one -- doug, more moderate, where is that one democrat that says i'm tired of the bribes. i don't want to bribe landrieu, nelson, unions. where is that one democrat that says, this stinks to high heaven and it is destroying our party? >> the democrat hasn't shown up yet. >> reporter: where is evan bayh, blanch lincoln? >> this either silent or made special deals this is more like a parliamentary system than a democratically

because of rookie mistakes like that? >> that is a rookie mistake. if obama can go to copenhagen to try to get the olympics to chicago, clearly he can go to boston to rally a demoralized base and make sure that democrats turn out. if democrats turn out, democrats will win. >> those are not two popular -- he did not get the olympics for chicago. and he did not get the climate change deal. >> but doing nothing is not an option. his domestic agenda hangs in the balance. it's important to go up there today to rally people. to get the obama voters who came out in 2008, to go to the polls. and explain the difference between voting for miss coaxially. i wish we had more time. we could go down and call the row, from the economy, to the health care, to the serious troubles that this country faced. and demonstrate, how this president has led by example. but he's going up there. it's the right thing to do. >> i think it's a wake-up call. i know everybody says she's run a lackluster campaign. it's massachusetts. but it's a wake-up call that democrats cannot run as a managerial party moving forward.

that international approaches -- global governance on display in copenhagen -- offers the best chance for tackling such a problem in they were offering the best chance to deal with the climate and ecosystems. >> be we need to be able to price carbon as well as understand what the risk of return is. business will be able to unleash this entire potential for a new low carbon economy. it is absolutely critical that we get this deal. whether we get in copenhagen, that is uncertain but we will have a path forward. i think this is the best way forward in order to solve this problem. >> president obama has announced when he is going. he went with all the other leaders. what does this mean for the meeting? >> what we have seen over the past couple of weeks is certainly an increased expectation that we will get out of copenhagen. i think what obama has done recently by setting up a provisional target, by changing the arrival date towards the end of the session which is more important, also by offering some financial increased commitment to help developing countries. >> what do you think about the prospects

is a little bit of a narrower one. you talked a little bit about energy but not much about copenhagen and climate change and agenda assistance with regard to adaptation and mitigation? >> right. thank you. as you know, we're very committed to a program of supporting adaptation and mitigation and technology transfer in the developing world. i went to copenhagen and announced that the united states would committee to do our part of 100 billion dollars - by 2020. we worked very hard to get the building blocks of an agreement that would enable us to do so. the accord that we finally hammered out did have requirements for verification and transparency that have to be adhered to, in order for us to be able and frankly, willing to make the investments. i think for many of the developing countries. this is a lifeline that they are desperate to have and that they will work with us as we try to sort out how best to deliver on that commitment. this is going to be an on-going challenge, and that's why i mentioned we have to do a better job of getting some of the other countries that have a role
